PPP will be looking into this case and we get news that Zaqy only responded AFTER his case went viral… of course with some silly conditions!
The problem Aqil faced is not just an isolated case. PAP has this policy on “compulsory education” but ironically it didn’t provide subsidies for special needs children in terms of education! This resulted in shortage of education places for these special needs children.
On top of that, it is an outdated model to have Special Schools for these students. Developed countries with Real World Class education will provide specialists who takes care of special needs students in normal schools so to help them integrate into the mainstream.
We pay MILLIONS for TWO EDUCATION MINISTERS but yet we ended up with such backward education system!
